It seems that IPv6 and TLS support are both delivered as patches. From
the install doc
Note: support for TLS (encrypted SMTP sessions and certificate
based authentication) and for IP version 6 is still separate from
Postfix but is expected to be merged soon.
Yes, but the patch that pkgsrc uses has both IPv6 and TLS in it:
You pointed out:
This is TLS only, with no v6.
This is TLS and v6, and is what pkgsrc is using (from a mirror site
and now one patch rev behind).
That's a path I'd rather not travel for the base when it can be delivered
with pkgsrc. Please correct me if I've missed something here, which is
I think it's deficient of our in-tree postfix to be missing v6 and TLS
- sendmail has them out of the box. But given that postfix is finally
going to integrate these patches, it doesn't sound like a good use of
time to integrate the patch into the base.
